I have been working on the side growing a business for well over 2 years now.
To say that everything has been a success would be a gross exaggeration, in fact, the vast majority has not been.
One of the main ways that I’ve made any success is by constantly taking in more knowledge through books. Here is a list of some of the many books I’ve read that have helped me grow my business.

Will It Fly
It really saves you the time from spending time and money creating something that doesn’t work and points you the way you should go.

It’s more of a lifestyle book than a business book. It talks about dealing with your personal problems, making sure you have the right team in place, and being healthy so you can get more things done.
When you first start a business you wear all the hats. When the business grows it becomes necessary to start hiring people to do certain things. This book helps you know when that time comes and how to work with a team when the time does come.

This world is designed to take our attention and focus on what they want us to focus on. Think about the last time you stood in line at a grocery store.

Google SEO For Bloggers
Depending on your business model you need to focus on different things. This particular book helps bloggers get traffic, and is one of if not the best book on the subject I’ve ever read.
I have been told so many times how “lucky” I am to work from home and not have a schedule like most people. And I agree I’m very fortunate, but it wasn’t an accident. It took a lot of long days, a lot of work, and help from family and friends.
This very quick read (less than 2 hours) is packed with such great things that all successful people do, and you can too.
The Miracle Morning
This book helps you get more done before 8 am then most people will do all day.
I know you’re probably thinking that you’re not a morning person, but so many others have said the same thing but with the help of this book you can most certainly become one.
The Mask Of Masculinity
This book talks about all kinds of things that men go through, how they cope, and how they need to change.
It doesn’t teach the best way to run a business, it teaches the best way to run your life and if your life is right your business will fall in line.

This book really needs to details as most have read it already.
For those few that haven’t it is the go-to guide to starting a business and living the life of your dreams by working smarter not harder.
